B&B's Long-Running Series Stars: Katherine Kelly Lang and John McCook Bring The Heart In Christmas Eve Episode!

The Bold and the Beautiful delivered a Christmas Eve episode on Thursday filled with vintage flashbacks and sentiments between its longest running remaining series stars and character: Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) and John McCook (Eric).

The episode begins with Eric thinking about his late wife Stephanie (Susan Flannery) in some flashbacks, and he even begins to sing at the piano,  as family and friends will soon gather fo Christmas Eve at the Forresters.  Stephanie’s portrait is now back in its rightful place above the mansion mantel.  No longer is a self-portrait of Maya (Karla Mosley) the centerpiece of the living room.

Meanwhile, Brooke is planning to celebrate Christmas with her children RJ, Hope and Rick (who is with the Avants in Hawaii) but each cannot make it home at the last minute for various reasons, leaving Brooke all alone on Christmas Eve.  Through flashbacks, a disraught and emotional Brooke thinks back to her kids when they were younger playing in the house, etc.  She realizes time has moved on, the kids are grown up, and its difficult moment for her.  However, the moments plays to the universal themse that many parents or people all over the world may be alone for Christmas, and those who long to be with their family, but because of circumstances, can’t.

Later, Eric shows up and convinces Brooke to join Bill (Don Diamont), Katie (Heather Tom), Steffy Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), Thomas (Pierson Fode), Liam (Scott Clifton) and Wyatt (Darin Brooks) at the mansion and to not be alone.  Once there, Brooke is finally happier and thankful to Eric, her enduring friend.   For Christmas, Eric gives her a locket for Christmas with her four children in it when they were younger.  She then asks Stephanie’s portrait if it is OK to kiss Eric, and she does.

Kudos have to go to Katherine Kelly Lang and John McCook for bringing some heart to a soap opera Christmas eve show that was both touching, and honored the history of their relationship and the show.

What did you think of The Bold and the Beautiful’s Christmas episode?  What did you think of the performances of Katherine and John? Who will be the man in Brooke’s life in 2016?  Comment below!

I loved the B&B Christmas Eve show compared to all the other soaps. I, personally, love flashbacks and B&B had them. I wish Days had done that with their show. Kudos to B&B, Kelly Lang and John McCook for wonderful and touching performances on today’s episode.

I absolutely loved the show! To be truthful, I have never been a Brooke fan, but I’m ready to forgive and forget after seeing her with Eric. The flashbacks and honor they both showed Stephanie was just what we needed at Christmas. Rick and family could always take Brooke’s house for theirs. Merry Christmas to all and thank you Mr. Fairman for what you do.

I agree. The party guests don’t make sense. No Pam either. She adds some much needed humor to this show. But I’ve been watching since EP1 and I’m sticking with them.

No mention of Thorne, Félicia, Kristen, Tony, Ridge, Pamela… Rick would be with his parents in the mansion with Bridget! Poor writers ! Enough si enough! I hate stories with Liam, Steffy, Ivy and Wyatt. The Steffy show is boriiiiiing! J. Young, L. Godfrey… are fabulous actors and should be the stars of the BB! This soap, it’s over for me! 2016 will be an ANOTHER show with Liam and Steffy

If I wrote B&B, I would put Eric and Brooke together again as the show’s top couple. They have been married. They have children together. (Bring back Bridget!). Stephanie made peace with Brooke when Stephanie died. I have no desire to see Ridge and Brooke together again. He wants to play in the kids’ sandbox now.

I would have liked to see more of the cast at the party. I thought it was a pretty paltry showing. It was nice to have Stephanie’s picture back up though.

Since 1989 when it was only 2 years old (I was in jr high) and I haven’t missed a Christmas episode yet…I always look forward to it and never haven’t been pleased…not everyone is going to be happy apparently and it’s silly,in my opinion, to gripe about it not going the way you wanted it to go or casted…I’ll only say that I do miss Hope very much. But loved the Christmas episode and all the trimmings..Happy HoHo to all.

I hate seeing Brooke alone! I hate the way Ridge discarded her. He judged her character?? Yet he is a jerk and has done more unethical things than she ever did!! I can’t wait till his LATEST LIE is exposed and his son gains joint custody of “his” child that Ridge is claiming as his. He is an insensitive idiot. He played with Katie’s feelings then dumped her but Brooke was dumped 1st for texting Deacon regarding Hope and dumped the 2nd time basically at the altar because Ridge couldn’t forgive her for a relationship with Bill–after Katie initially pushed… Read more »

Although Some storylines are just not believable like Liam passing out in the bathroom of the plane, at least they move this show along and get to the point faster. They only have 30 minutes and it moves to a conclusion much fast than Y&R. I have really began to like this show better for that reason.

‘The Talk’ Returns as Sheryl Underwood Shares the ‘Trauma’ She Feels Over Incident That Led to Sharon Osbourne’s Exit

CBS’ afternoon series The Talk finally returned to the air, following the departure of Sharon Osbourne and the tense moments that went down on the March 10th episode between her and Sheryl Underwood.

Monday afternoon, co-hosts: Sheryl Underwood, Elaine Welteroth, Amanda Kloots and Carrie Ann Inaba along with diversity and inclusion expert, Donald E. Grant, were on the episode.  Grant, served as the moderator as the women discussed what happened when Osbourne came at Underwood when defending Piers Morgan’s remarks about Meghan Markle, eventually prompting an extended internal investigation by CBS.

On today’s episode, Sheryl Underwood shared: “I didn’t want to escalate things with Sharon, because I thought I was having a conversation with a friend, but also, I knew I had to be an example for others to follow. I didn’t want to be perceived as that ‘angry Black woman’, and that really scared me. I didn’t want to be that and I wanted to remain calm and focused. It’s difficult to go back to that day because I just feel the trauma. I feel fearful, a little apprehensive.”

Elaine Welteroth added, “When you go back and watch what happened in that episode, you will see two Black women walking the same tightrope that Black women are walking every single day in the workplace.  As Sheryl said, we knew we had to stay composed in that situation, even in the face of someone who was A, not listening, and B, who went off the rails into disrespect when we were maintaining our respect within the context of this very complex, charged, emotional conversation.  There have been a lot of false narratives that have been spun in the aftermath of what happened on that episode…this is the first time that I have had the opportunity to speak. And I think it’s really important that we have the opportunity to say that the false accusations that are swirling in the press that frame Sheryl and I as some kind of, you know, people who attacked a woman on air, and were part of some sort of, you know, conspiracy, that is absolutely, categorically false.”

She later added, “I just want to acknowledge you, Sheryl, on air for how you handled the situation. I think it’s important for people to really know the strength and willpower it takes to maintain that kind of composure in that situation. And I think for me, I was just really entering that conversation with the hope of finding a common ground and I didn’t feel like I was heard.”

In addition, Underwood wanted to go on record stating that while she had received text messages from Osbourne, she hadn’t replied to them because she wasn’t sure she was supposed to during during an internal investigation. Osbourne had said that she sent texts to Underwood and had apologized for her actions.

Sheryl shared: “I have never been through something like this. I didn’t know whether you were supposed to communicate or not communicate.  I have not spoken to Sharon, I haven’t had a phone call from her, ” However, Underwood expressed that if a friend were to come up to her and greet her nicely, she would do that same, “When you’re friends with someone, you stay friends,” she said.

So, what did you think about the sentiments shared by Sheryl and Elaine during The Talk? Was this episode helpful in shining a lot on racism, and successful in dealing with what transpired on March 10th with Sharon Osbourne? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!
